Obaseki Holds Victory March in Edo

Governor Godwin Obaseki held a victory March in Benin, Edo State today as part of the activities to celebrate his victory at the Supreme Court.

After the Edo State Gubernatorial elections, his rival and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu had brought a certificate forgery case against him which had been dismissed by the Supreme Court.

To celebrate this victory, Governor Godwin Obaseki and his supporters had taken to the streets of Benin city to hold a victory rally. During the rally, Obaseki said that his victory shows that Edo is not ‘Lagos or Imo’, an apparent jibe to his former party, APC and his predecessor/political foe, Adams Oshiomole.

“During a rally to celebrate the verdict of the Supreme Court in the certificate forgery case brought against me, I reassured party faithful that our administration will continue to work for the development of the state, he said in a statement.”

“Those who lost the 2020 election in Edo intended to cage the state, but we resisted them. We don’t have much resources in Edo but we have been able to utilize the little we have in developing the state. Until we change our mindset and mentality that taxpayers’ money is meant to work for people, development will be out of reach. Unless we change, Nigeria will not move forward. We have to pray to God so that what happened in Edo will also happen in Nigeria,” he continued.

“We have embarked on this victory march to thank Edo people, as the victory belongs to God and Edo people. Through your support and determination, you have shown that Edo is Edo, not Lagos or Imo,” he added.
